Embracing Risk to Sustain a Neighborhood
Sunday, November 3
1 – 3 p.m.
IUPUI Campus Center Auditorium
420 University Boulevard
Indianapolis, IN 46202
What do The Slippery Noodle Inn, St. John the Evangelist Church, Moeller Printing, and The Walker Theater have in common? These organizations have faced major difficulties in their long existences – economic hardships, including surviving the Great Depression; world wars, when commodities were scarce; and social change. Join the Kelley School of Business Indianapolis and LISC for an open and frank conversation between business and community leaders about sustaining an organization’s mission in the face of risk. Our faculty will facilitate an examination of how these long-term organizations survived in-place while others failed or left the neighborhood. Our panel will identify the major risks the participants have faced and build an understanding of the means by which the institutions have survived and thrived as the neighborhoods around them changed. The moderator for the panel will be Julie Grice, VP, Indy Chamber and Executive Director, Business Ownership Initiative.
